Jack Wilshere says that Ryan Fraser has a great attitude to play for a club like Arsenal as the Gunners continue monitoring the youngster.

Ryan Fraser is one of many wingers who have been linked with a move to Arsenal. After another great season with Bournemouth, the Scotland international is a wanted man and as he enters the final year of his contract at the Vitality Stadium, a move to the Emirates would make sense.

Arsenal are in need of creativity down the flanks and Ryan Fraser could do just that.

While speaking to Football London, Jack Wilshere gave raving reviews of his teammate, stating that Ryan Fraser is a hardworking player with an exceptional attitude.

“I think Ryan Fraser would be a great signing. I know him well. He’s probably the hardest working player I’ve ever worked with,” he told Football London. “He’s got an exceptional attitude.

“On the pitch he runs around all day – he’s the first one on the pitch in the morning and the last one off it.

“His physical attributes have really come on. He’s really improved that side of his game. He’s really come on.

“Technically he’s really come on. You can see that by all the chances he created last year. You can see that by the large number of assists he got last season.

“That’s credit to him and credit to Eddie [Howe]. Eddie put a lot of trust in him and it’s been rewarded.

“He’s nurtured him and he’s turned him into a top player – and if he goes to Arsenal I wish him all the luck in the world as he’s a great guy and a great player.”

“Ryan would be the ideal candidate to load the bullets for Aubameyang and Lacazette to fire up front,” Wilshere said. “Imagine him and Ozil in the side. Imagine the number of chances they would create for the strikers.
